USF College of Nursing Welcomes New Fall 2013 Master’s and Doctoral Students
University of South Florida College of Nursing held the 2012-2013 Graduate-level Orientation for Master’s, Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) incoming students on June 28, 2013.
The purpose of USF College of Nursing’s graduate-level orientation is to introduce new students to the University and the College’s policies and procedures, services, and familiarize them with specific program information to help them succeed. More than 130 students attended.
“We began hosting live orientation sessions over a year ago to help students with their transition to graduate studies,” said USF College of Nursing Academic Advisor for Graduate Program, Scott Burgess. “Our goal is to formally welcome our students to USF Nursing, help them understand policies and procedures specific to the College, walk them through some of the technology they will utilize in and outside of the classroom, inform them about the academic and financial resources, and allow the opportunity for them to meet faculty, staff and fellow students.”
After a full day of workshops and tutorials, students were separated based on their majors and concentrations.
Master’s degree groups based on their concentrations include:Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner and Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Concentrations Family Nurse Practitioner Concentration Nurse Education Concentration Occupational Health/Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Concentration Oncology/Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Concentration Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Concentration Nurse Anesthesia Concentration
